This morning, before I went to work to check out some parliament protocols from the 17th century I finished the last details on the large cupboard that I wanted in the kitchen in the dolls house. Like the sink it is modeled on my grandmother's cupboard.

You can open the doors and the three larger drawers, but not the small ones. The original cupboard reached all the way to the ceiling, but this house has slightly wrong proportions, so that the ceilings are too high up, and the cupboard would look all wrong if I made it even taller. It's a bit too tall as it is.
The main material is plywood (1,5 mm), but I also used some wood strips, and hinges that I bought from Skala Minimal.

The wooden sofa and the towel hanger come from Margaretas Dockskåp. Both are "stained" with strong coffee and then varnished. On the sofa you can see the find I made on Tuesday: A dad for the dolls house. from the '40s or '50s and, as you see, wear a doctor's coat. I have now removed it carefully and will make new clothes for him eventually. For now he's in bed, where he can be naked without anyone taking offense ;) He is probably made by the German firm Caco, who still make similar dolls.

This afternoon I got some small stuff that I had ordered from Skala Minimal and now I have pots and cutlery and somewhere to put the dishes to dry. The tea set is from when I was a little girl and unfortunately a little too big.

Wow, that's so great the drawers open *and* have teeny tiny cutlery in them. :-)

It's probably good you didn't make the smallest drawers open as well. They are getting small enough that you might violate some law of physics. ;-)

Thank you and I think you're right about the smaller drawers - my fingers feel like big clumsy sausages or something when I'm dealing with such small things.
